The P3Dv4 Academic provides the A36 Beech as a default aircraft.

That would be the:
CARENADO BONANZA A36 P3D

Just wondering, why did you switch from the default P3D F22 aircraft to the CARENADO BONANZA A36 ?

I use the default P3D f22 and no problems to report with the P3Dv4.3 C-130.

Maybe you could switch back to the P3D default F22 saved default flight, reboot the PC and test again.

I use to work at a FBO at KADS Addison, Texas as a Mechanic's Assist while I was going back to school at the University of North Texas after my service in the USAF. The 'Fixed Base Operation' was Tex-Sun Beechcraft and I learned to fly and get my PPL there. I earned flying hours by washing airplanes after my regular work hours. I love all Beechcraft! That is why I chose the A36.
I will change back to the F22 and try again.
Thanks for trying to help me.

Hey Vaughan
OK!
My plan now is to uninstall P3Dv4 and THEN re-install P3Dv4 on another completely different Hard Drive.
As is, my beautiful P3Dv4 has gone "NUTS" after this latest update because my Logitech Joystick does not work correctly. I cannot fly it like this. Maybe I can get a "pre-update" version to use because I know it worked just fine.
I know this Logitech, Extreme 3D Pro works because it works on FSX SE flight simulator on a completely different Hard Drive.
I will let you know if my plan works!
Take Care, Bud!

Sounds like a good plan.

Did it fix the problem?

Just wanted to mention that this topic is actually about C-130 four engine failure.
Are you having this problem?

I understand.

Changing the wording in post/subject title would be helpful.

Again, again, and again my C-130 automatically cuts all four engines. I have written in the Forums numerous times about the same problem(s). Please fix on the next 4.4, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 4.8, and/or whatever update.

I am also getting random fuel shut offs in flight and on the ground.

Various aircraft, twin corporate and twin helo. The engines will restart with a quick CTRL+E, but in the helo I don’t have enough altitude for that.

I can’t find what happens, but multiple engine fuel shut down seems to be it.

Same here.

Various aircraft, multiple (all) engines shutdown.

Very bad in the helo, not so bad at FL390.

I can’t work out why, but CTRL+E does restart the engines. Not in enough time in the helo.

This topic is about the C-130 engine failure in P3D version 4.3.

Are you testing the C-130 now with P3Dv4.3?

No sorry. I’ll go somewhere else.
